If you have experience as an employee benefits account manager and you’ve always wanted to live on or near the West Coast of the country, check out this position in Santa Monica, California.
This opportunity will see you working for a regional, independent brokerage. Your book of business will see you working with small and mid-sized groups. You should have a valid CA Life and Health License, as well as two or three years of experience with group benefit plans.
As for your new hometown, Santa Monica is the westernmost city in Los Angeles County. It is known around the world for its beaches and amusement pier. It’s the stuff California Dreamin’ is made of.
Built in 1909, the Santa Monica Pier offers visitors and residents alike the chance to enjoy:
- A walk to its end to fish (or to watch those who fish) and to watch the surfers riding the waves to the shore.
- A chance to enjoy the small on-pier amusement park.
- The opportunity to visit and ride on the Santa Monica Looff Hippodrome (a carousel featured prominently in the movie The Sting).
A short walk just a couple of blocks east of the pier is the Third Street Promenade, a street that was closed to traffic in the 1960s and now is known throughout Southern California as an upscale dining, shopping and entertainment complex.
In addition, a walk going north or south along Palisades Park (along the bluffs above the ocean), is also a Southern California must-do.
As for the weather, Santa Monica enjoys an average of about 310 days of sunshine a year. Many of those days start off foggy in May, June and July due to variations in ocean temperature and currents, but the sun burns off the fog by early afternoon (usually). September actually is the warmest month of the year (due to the dry and hot winds known as Santa Ana winds), making September the best month for the beach (it’s also the time many tourists have gone back to school and work, so the sands are much less crowded).
Homes in Santa Monica are pricey (understandably so, considering the city’s location in the high-priced coastal area of Los Angeles). Zillow.com reported that the median home price (half are below and half are above) in Santa Monica in mid-May was a tad over $1 million.
Rents in Santa Monica also are high, with HotPads.com reporting that the average monthly rental price for a two-bedroom unit in Santa Monica is $3,600.
